CATALOGUE, 



HYACINTHS 



The Hyacinth is, perhaps, the most popular and most universally cultivated of 
all bulbous flowers. The cultivation of this bulb for commerce is confined to 
Baarlem (Holland) and its neighborhood — hundred of acres being entirely 
occupied by it. A field of Hyacinths in full bloom is described as a sight gor- 
geous in the e:^treme. Xeed we be surprised at its great popularity, when we 
consider, it is of the easiest culture, perfectly hardy, has delicacy and variety of 
coloring, and delicious perfume. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Glasses, 

It is not well to commence too soon with glasses ; from the beginning of 
October up to December is the best time. Fill the glasses with water, (rain water 
is the best,) place in the bulbs so that the base of each barely touches the water, 
and put them in a dark, dry place ; when the roots are about two or three inches 
long, they mny be brought to the light, but not too suddenly exposed ; as the 
foliage and trusses advance, give all the air possible, otherwise they will be drawn 
up too weak ; the glasses should be kept filled with water, and should be turned 
frequently to prevent ill-shaped plants. 

Culture of Hyacinths in Pots. 

Hyacinths required to bloom by Christmas, should be potted early in September ; 
the following instructions for treatment of spring-flowering bulbs will be quite 
applicable to these, excepting that they may be taken from the plunging bed and 
placed in heat a little sooner than for later-flowering kinds. 

Hyacinths to flower in spring and for succession, should be planted in October, 
November and December ; the best compost for them is one-half turfy fibrous loam 
well rotted, third part good old decomposed manure, fourth part fine rotted leaf 
mould ; to every barrowful of the above compost, add one peck of clean, sharp 
sand. The sized pots generally used are five and six inch. Hyacinths, as well 
as all other plants, require good drainage; therefore, place about an inch of pot- 
sherd in the bottom of the pot, with a layer of rotten cow manure, fill up the pot 
with the compost, with a little sharp sand on the top, on which place the bulb, 
pressing it firmly down, filling round with the soil just to leave the crown in sight. 
When this is done, give them a good soaking of water, taking care to let them 
have plenty of time to drain before plunging; choose a hard dry place out of 
doors to stand them on, covering them over six or eight inches with old tan or 
ashes, leaving them thus till the pots are well filled with root ; then remove them 
to a pit or frame, gradually exposing them to light ; after which, place them in a 
warm room or house Attention must paid to watering ; and as the foliage 
and trusses advance, occasional waterings of liquid manure is very essential. 
When the blooms begin to expand, the plants may be taken to a cool room, 
where there is plenty of light. 

Hyacinths for Beds or Borders, 

Hyacinths will succeed in any well-drained soil. If of a very adhesive nature, 
add two or three inches of sharp sand and about the same quantity of well decayed 
manure ; then dig the soil eighteen inches deep, well 'mixing the sand and manure 
with the soil. Sandy loams require nothing more than the addition of manure 
and deep digging. Plant, when the soil is dry, in rows about nine or ten inches 
apart, and a foot between the rows. The crown of the bulb should be three or 
four inches under the surface of the soil Before severe freezing, cover the bed 
with three or four inches of old tan, hops or short litter, to exclude frosts. This, 
however, should be removed early in spring. 

DOUBLE HYACINTH. 

The very earliest are marked thus **, the early *. These are suitable for grow- 
ing in pots and glasses, but are not quite as earfy as the single. The double and 
late varieties succeed best in pots, boxes or open ground.

SINGLE HYACINTHS. 

Many persons regard Single Hyacinths as inferior to Double — the contrary is 
however the fact. They are earlier, much superior for forcing, having larger spikes, 
with greater number of bells, clear bright colors and more powerful fragrance.

TULIPS. 

The Tulip is well known to every cultivator of Flowers, and is universally 
admired for its bright and showy colors. It is of the easiest cultivation, being 
perfectly hardy, and grows freely in any ordinary soil. Many of the tall growing 
and late blooming varieties are only suitable for garden cultivation, whilst the 
early flowering, dwarf varieties, are admirable for forcing. Autumn is best for 
planting, and if the ground is prepared as recommended for Hyacinths, they will 
succeed to perfection. In planting, cover the bulbs three or four inches, and 
about four inches apart, and nine or ten inches between the rows.

CnOCTJS— {Crocus Vernus.) 

Culture of the Crocus in the open ground. 

Chbose a deep, light, rich soil, in an open situation ; plant the bulbs in October, 
November or December, two or three inches deep, and about two inches apart, 
covering them with the fine mould. The Crocus, used for edging beds or borders, 
or planted in lines along the edges of walks, or in clumps, has a beautiful effect 
during the early spring, if the colors are tastefully arranged. 

Culture of the Crocus in pots, ornamental vases, wire baskets, &c. 

Commence planting about the middle of October, in fine sandy soil. For pots 
or vases, a few may be planted every three weeks, for a succession. In planting 
in wire baskets, procure some green moss, with which line the inside of the basket, 
to prevent the mould going through ; fill up with the soil recommended, and plant 
the bulbs on the top, two inches apart, half covering them ; then place moss 
between the bulbs to give the surface a beautiful green appearance. "When they 
begin to show flower, a liberal supply of water will be required. 

Crocusses may be grown in glasses, with the same treatment as the Hyacinth.
